"total recall" is about this and you never need referrals. extraordinary immigrant's story, so don't wait. coming here with nothing and withll theood yes ahead, getting to the point where i am,
12:03 am
being successful in bodybuilding go e distance wityou. and being successful in films and being successful in the call now trequ your free decision guide. political arena, and also at the this ey-to-understand guide same time, i had an extraordinary personal life. willnswer so your questions, and helpou find the rp medicare supplement plan everything was perfect. and so all of a sudden, from one day to the next, the personal life totally crashed and i wiped out everything that i had, the >>nit,nly inmerica. summer loving back from e thing that i cherished the most past. was my personal life, was my ♪ sr loving had m marriage, was my family. i always thought that it was one summer loving happen so st ♪ of my greatest accomplishments and all of a sudden that was >> he was too cool for school. gone when all this became public she was a sweet, innocennew girl. with mildred and joseph and all that. john travolta and ivia newton john made "grease" a stupendous box office blockster. so now, you know, since that point, i've been struggling with now they a rnited for a that and it has been very tough, because even though my holidaalbum called "this i chrimas." professional life and my career and everything has continued, and i have made movies since showing them all smiles, holding matching cups,ooking like then and speeches and gotten
12:04 am
chry co-hosts on local news very heavily involved in moing shows. promoting the environment and so ok pretty damnood for their on, but nothing is the same ageswhh may or m not be a gift of nature. anymore because my personal life has been destroyed. songs wi be assic holiday standards like "christmas," "silent nit" and "deckhe so now -- destroyed because of halls. stupidity, of bad decision there will also be a smash hit to "u're the one that i want." making and this huge failure on i guess that the idea came from my part and made a lot of people suffer because of that. so all of that is always on my mind. >> have you been taken aback by the extremity of some of the reaction? people treating you almost like travol. a mass murderer, how dare you d he said i wanted to make this an intimate aummotto, commit this hideous crime, when actually, you did what millions of men have done. whether it applies to cars, wom i'm not excusing it, defending it, anything. or mies. i'm just trying to put it into some kind of context, that at times, you've been so battered by this. this one, perhs dangerously, has all five components. have you felt it's been too much or not? clearly has the poteial to go one of two-ways. >> you know, i never tell the memoryane for people like me who had become a teenager en "grease" elod, who press what to write and what to say. worspp the grod that danny they do what they do and i do zucko spat on.he cheeseiest
12:05 am
what i do. and you know, i think that it is record in history. my doing. they didn't create this story. no one else created the story. i created it. it's my doing. the former, sadly, the 47-year-olha-bitn ne i did not ever experience the anchor in me the latter. severity that you just explained, but then again, you good night like to be a little over the ordinary rubs don't always work on my arthritis. top. that's okay. >> you're probably not reading half of it, right, i would imagine. >> i would say i don't read any of it. no. >> i've been through a divorce. i've been fired from a high profile job back in britain. i've been through very difficult times in my life, and the old cliche you find out who your real friends are, i found to be completely true. that some people run for the hills on both occasions, others ran towards me to help when i least expected some of them to. how have you found it? who's been the rocks if you like, for you in this? >> i think that there's a tremendous amount of people that have shown great support, and then there's a lot of people that have let me know that
12:06 am
they're disappointed and it's perfectly fine, including my children that were disappointed in that action and inevitably my wife was very disappointed, and so, look, it's my -- it's my fault. there's no one else to blame for it. i wouldn't even begin to start pointing the finger at anybody because the reality of it is i created it, i created my career and all those kind of things and the relationship in all of this, but i also screwed up badly and i take the full blame for it. the key thing now is to kind of figure out how do i build all this back and how do i gain the trust of the children again and have a good relationship with the kids, which is so important to me. i love my kids dearly and i love maria. i love maria. she has been truly the only love that i've ever had. that's what's so pitiful about it.
12:07 am
it's one thing if you have a situation like that and you say i was ready to get out of this situation anyway, out of this marriage, but that's not the case. she was the most perfect wife and she was extraordinary. >> you've hinted in some of the interviews you've given that you hope to get back with maria. in fact, you've gone a bit further and say you believe from her side this may also be something that she may wish. do you think there's a good chance you can get back together? >> i cannot speak for maria. she has to speak for herself. i can only tell you that i hope that eventually we can rebuild the relationship and that we will be together as one family. >> what people find most try capzasin-hp incomprehensible is that it penetrates deep to block pain signals fohours of relief. somebody as successful as you, somebody as rich as you, as capzasin-hp. take the pain out of arthritis. politically motivated as you were at the time, would take such an extraordinary risk, but was it actually more complex? was it that the risk you were taking seemed one of the safest risks you could take, that it was with somebody your home who you could trust, who wouldn't tell anybody? was it more that?
12:08 am
>> i would say that it makes no difference. i mean, it makes no difference what was going through my mind at that time. it doesn't clean up the mess. it doesn't soften the blow to my family. i mean, what i have done is just about the stupidest thing that any human being can do. >> did it feel like it at the time? did you know what you were doing? did you know -- >> no, because you always think, you know, you don't think about the consequences. no. >> the book doesn't make clear whether this was a one-off or happened more than once, it was a relationship. what was the reality of that? >> i think the book goes into the details of the whole thing and i think that people when they read it, they will get an
12:09 am
understanding of what the whole thing was about, and that i leave it at that. because i think that i have talked about it enough and every time i do talk about it, it causes pain to my children and all that, and i don't want to dwell on it. >> i was going to ask you that. i've got four kids and if i was in your position and had written a book about it, i can't imagine it's easy, your relationship with them, you've already said has been very difficult since this. i can't imagine this process helps that. it does prompt the question why did you go into that kind of detail in the book, because you have got the kids there, they are going to read, they are going to see the interviews. it sort of compounds it slightly for them. >> first of all, the auto biography has been something that we have talked about for 20 years. simon and shuster, who i have done all my books with, always wanted me to do, after i wrote a successful book on bodybuilding, they wanted me to do the autobiography.
12:10 am
in the '90s i was doing two, three movies a year and i was too busy to do that. i also think my story isn't interesting enough, but after the governorship, i felt like it is an interesting story and this was before the scandal ever came out, we started talking again with simon and shuster and kept going down that road, maybe i should after i'm finished with the governorship, sit down and write this autobiography and it was a difficult time to think back and to go back in my life because i always was a person that was going forward. dreams, vision, go after it, then the next one and the next one and so on. so i did it. i thought that now with the governorship, it's an interesting story, but at the same time, there is the scandal. so there was now a choice that i had to make, do i want to make this a book about the success story of my life or do i want to go and really writaboumy
12:11 am
failures, all of therong decisionthat i have made, and on personal level and on a profesonevel land al success story. i deded at i going to t all oft he bk antry to be as hosts possible about e good a the bad and that's exactly what this is about. d yoknan, i have to te youllifhose qstions don'comep now and if this issudomep t or incean theook, it wi me up when the next movie comes will come up when the movie after that. at one point othe her,r ook, ?kri always have been a perso thatu know, fas the conseqnces, and i don't belie running the other way.n'dolie in hiding. do believe in avoiding the quostiand s uff li that. mite detail but becae there is cldreout there, because there's a family, dowa too any fur think i'aused enoug

the r side andhat you say out the other deyou cannot takeor real.. i me, they don't believehat that is a bad thinthat he was successful, nor do i think the romney side believe metimes seriously. is is a political year. g on. they wiltry too everythi at they can and the special interestroups and the other groups are there to paint ch other in the mt horrible way. negative ads play er than positive ads. so therefore, you will aay play the negative ads. but the important thing is av6 always sayo people, listen to them carefully tomorrow. pay attention. pele should sit and be glued to the television t with a notepad and take notes and really listen carefully what
12:22 am
each one says and how ch ty reallyonvince you that they actually not just paint this picture of whaamerica should be like and have all this kind of nice sayings, but w is really believable that they areg parties together and getting the job done. >> i kw you haven't decided who you're going to vo for in all this time, but right now, if you hato vote tomorrow, o would yovote for? >> iould have to first listen to theebates. so they're that importanto you? t's ry important. to me, the debates a ablutely important.there were t made the decisiowabefore, like with president sh and it was because of the relationship that we had, of the kind of gs that he has done for californ, foinstance, an the kind of working relation that we had d the history and o with for instancseclared becaus friend ande haalways been in the centersomeone that tried

12:24 am
that he can to solhe i cannot imagine that president ama is sitng there and saying to hielf let me not fix th h or let is fail. there's no sh thin i think th wn you sit his as g in my office, you work and you worry about those ings day and nigh many times you have eepness nights and you worboutse things and you try to solvit. it's not that easy. it is a veryvery difficult job, and i think that,ounow, probably as he can do and he it hisay and they did it their i think thatitt romney has done great as governor o massachusetts and he's a ver taleed guy a vgood in what he do, to looat both of those candidat, and really listen to
